will outspend us in this election but we can't allow them to outwork us. we will re-elect president obama. are you ready? [ applause ] we must engage in the political system but that isn't enough. to help students succeed in these challenging times, we must also harness the strength of our association to take charge of the teaching profession. we need to support our members to define what good teaching looks like so others can't reduce good teaching to standardized tests. we must have a real say, a real say, in how educators are prepared, trained and evaluated. we are all leaders in our union and in our profession. we know how to bargain for a contract, how to mobilize our members for an election, how to advocate for legislation and obviously we need to keep doing all of those things with the attacks that are coming, we must do it and do it well. but my question to you is this. are we willing to assert our leadership and take responsibility for our professions? the demands of our work are changing as our students change and as the world around us is changing too fast, it is time for us to
to plan for people? there is something that makes us hesitant to reach out to others. some of us can take this idea of independence to an extreme. i think this is probably some place in newfoundland, a remote shore of canada. we have come to believe that reaching out to others is a sign of weakness. was he asking for help and support as a vulnerability instead of a necessary strength. so if you agree with me that connections are the key to a good life, i would like you to explore with me how technology, and in particular, how that works can actually help. i would like to tell you about ties in the online network service. that is installed on every b-top computer in san francisco. this knowledge built on 20 years of connections to secure the future. it creates personal, private, secure online networks. here is what happened personal network looks like. and joe and her daughter created a network together, and what they did, they created a network in part because guildhall has an advance in her experience with cancer, and they wanted to coordinate the care and the connections and bring peopl
in place of how we work with them. one of the things we do is we asked people -- what do you want to use a computer for? i cannot tell you how many people tell us they have never been asked that. they have been told they need to use a computer, but no one has told the what they need it for. sometimes we hear that people do not have anything they want to use it for, but a lot of times, they have something in particular. we tried to focus on something that will give them early success. so they are going to be able to have some success with the computer. if someone wants to be able to e-mail their grandchildren so they can get pictures of their grandkids, they will be motivated to push past their technology fear for that. at least i keep telling my mother that. but we also have to recognize that one of the things that happens is people come in who have been using technology, and they have their own systems for use in it, and we let them. we do not try to change how people are using it. an example of that is my grandmother. she was a wonderful baker. i miss her, but i miss her baked goods mo
the hard work we do with our students who are our highest priority. this was also a reminder to us that we have got some things coming up. we're doing it to your budget in two years and we're looking at a prop h renewal and a children's fund renewal. i do not want us to sit idle on this and as my colleagues have clearly articulated, we have to be strong and continued to advocate for funding from the states so our city does not have to continue to augment what they cannot provide. and we have to make sure that we continue to keep our nose to the grindstone and do the hard work that we do. and continue to thank our voters who support us in the ways they do because we're going to -- we have got to -- two large funds that have helped us through many years and we would not able to get through these terrible budget times without it. just a heartfelt thank you to all of our san franciscans who continued to support our school district and to the city for all their continued support as well. i am a little curious if we have the kind of list of what we would restore should any special money comes fa
in this country and strongly supports joining the law of the sea. marvin was unable to join us today, but he has submitted testimony for the record. in his full testimony, we place in the record as if right here in full. a short excerpt. if the united states were to become a party to the convention, it could participate in the internationally recognized process for claiming extended continental shelf and the rights over oil and gas which would provide legal certainty for accessing and developing those energy resources. without this clear claim, our company would not find investment conditions favorable. finally, we turn to manufacturing. as many of you know, rare earth minerals are critical to a large part of modern manufacturing. rare earth minerals are an essential component of communication systems and defense control systems and missile defense control technology and other weapons systems. it includes the breath of their scope of rare either mineral use and it's in electronics and in computers and cell phones and all of the advanced weapons systems, some of which i named. today, my friends,
-reward in using promoters. there was the resolution to this issue but it is something that you should leave here thinking about. some people chimed in to say that there is not a dime that they would not bother turning using a promoter if they thought there was some risk involved in that. obviously, other people feel differently. that risk- reward ratio is something that you need to think seriously about if you are going to continue to use promoters at your venue. at this point, certainly take some questions. if you are done, it is 10:04. i appreciate you all coming. we have the bac cards. -- feedback cards. i would love to hear it in e-mail form or you can call me. please use the entertainment commission as a resource, but be nice. you saw all of us today. we are here to help you if we can. we do have to issue some permits that those of you -- that somebody do not like, but there is. thank you. >> good morning, everybody. welcome to the technology summit. we are looking forward to a fantastic day. we are going to start with a demonstration of the wii system. it is an interactive gaming system th
of communications technology that the target was using that whether by wire, cable, or satellite transmission. the result was a carve out from the court approval for surveillances that targeted communications made from overseas locations. with the change in technology over the intervening years since 1978, that carve out has started to break down and the government found itself expending significant manpower generating applications for surveillances against persons outside the united states. as a result the government was unnecessarily expanding resources and increasingly forced to make tough choices regarding surveillance of targets. to the enduring credit, they recognized that this was untenable in a post-9/11 world and after a year of careful consideration, it passed the faa. first it authorized the fisa court to improve categories of non-u.s. persons intelligence targets overseas without providing the government to provide an individualized application that brought the operation of pfizer back in line with the original intent. second it established a system of oversight by the fisa court
recology for hosting us, joining the chamber, and small business leaders tonight. as elizabeth and mark pointed out, they knew our san francisco businesses had started celebrating early. one of the reasons is because san francisco small businesses can smell a party two weeks and dance. -- in a defense -- they can smelly party two weeks in advance. [laughter] they are fun to work with. during our most economically challenging times, it was small businesses that kept coming back. they were so resilience. as i stepped up to take on this responsibility as mayor, it clearly was on my wind -- mind to find some way to register our appreciation. small business by its name, sometimes you are thinking these are people and businesses isolated by themselves. but you are a big topic at city hall these days. you are big because we are getting more people to understand how it is that our small businesses are 50% of all the employees that are hired in our city. 50 2% of the revenue generated in our city. 52% of the revenue generated in our cities from small businesses. when you look at challenges, when

fiber optic submarine cables are the lifeblood of u.s. carriers' global business and the digital trade route of the 21st century. aside from the land-based connections with canada and mexico, more than 95% of international communications traffic travels over 38 submarine cables, each roughly the diameter of a garden hose. without these cables, current satellite capacity could carry only 7% of the total u.s. international traffic. any disruption to the global submarine network could have a significant effect on the flow of digital information around the world as well as an impact on the world economy. as one official from the federal reserve noted in referring to submarine cable networks, when communications networks go down, the financial sector does not grind to a halt. it snaps to a halt. there must be an appropriate legal framework based upon global cooperation and the rule of law that protects submarine cables. the convention provides this necessary framework in ten provisions applicable to submarine cables. these provisions go beyond existing international law to provide a c

ofsecretay clinton used the word sorry, sorry for the losses suffered by the pakistani military and passed on regrets and condolences. if you want to define that as an apology, it's an apology but it's important to focus on what she said it for. sorry for the pakistani military losses. she did not apparent will i apologize for the u.s. carrying out an air strike on pakistani territory. these are important differences and allows the military to say they didn't apologize for the air strike but for the deaths it caused. the secretary of state spokeswoman danced around it in a briefing. >> i think the intent here is we are both sorry for the losses suffered by both our countries in this fight against terrorists. >> is it fair to consider this an apology? >> the statement speaks for itself. the words are there and i'm not going to improve on it here. >> bottom line, it depends what you consider the definition of apology to be, trace. >> whatever the meaning of these words, this appears to be a good thing for the united states. >> yeah, absolutely no doubt about that. since this incident, the u.
to give you a special patdown with the back of my hand. i said use all 10 fingers, i'll buy you breakfast. checkpoint, security, two. i survived the situation, got on the plane. the point is this, that what's in my head i've never had to apologize for. first thought wrong properly filtered was some kind of rehabilitation or education or part of the c.o. or the p.d. or the d.a., helps first thought wrong become next right thing. you can do it. i can teach the incarcerated population what to want because they always get what they wanted. they wanted more, they got more. they got it, they got it. they want someday, they left with none. they wanted her or him, they got that. i can tell them what to want now. pass first thought wrong, what to want. they do the right work, i can show them how to keep it this time. my boy's safe all day. it's not because of me. it's because of efforts like this.

. not the promoter. at the end of the day, stuff goes downhill. it is on you to make sure that you use promoters the to contrast and the to manage, essentially. it is a partnership. hopefully not -- here is the key, i will be going home to my dog now. you have got to work with these promoters. at the end of the day, the same consequences are going to hold. >> [inaudible] >> i understand. >> [inaudible] >> right. it would be great if it was like yelp for promoters. unfortunately, we are just not going to be able to do that. more than legal reasons, we cannot put in the place of liability. that just will not happen. i will encourage you guys to make one up on your own. i will take one more question and then move along. >> [inaudible] >> to go back to that. go back one more. one more. i suppose that we just, if you are asking about places i have worked, ok. i will ask. i have got the hook. i will move on [laughter] -- i will move on.

the other generation of police officers that gave us these police officers to stand up and be recognized. [applause] >> talk about raising your kids right. another recognition i want to make is we are going to experience in the next 30 days of record exit of police officers, especially commissioned officers due to the sun setting of the retirement program. many of the people that are going out red nominations tonight. if i could, all officers that will be retiring and leaving us, they we think you for your service by getting you to stand. [applause] that is going to close our program. know that all of these officers when they get back to work, they will go out again looking for trouble and probably find it. i trust they will demonstrate again what these officers do every day, and that is keep this city safe. the command staff and commission will be available for pictures. family and kids for sure. if you can get your metal back from this little guy. thank you very much. hopefully we will see you all again soon. keep the officers in your thoughts and prayers. keep them safe.

. >> this is the best place for us to make sure they have everything they need to go out on site. >> reporter: laundry and a mess hall. a thousand crews are here as big as this is, it's duplicate is out in the middle river. >> today is one of our biggest days where we have every single crew here in place. >> reporter: bge uses no larger distribution table than this, 32,000-volts, 11 snapped poles are tackled by an 11 man work crew. >> i don't know what they call it here, back home we call it overhead twisted cable. it's on the ground. >> reporter: your area may have told you days not from around here. he's 68 years old and retired once and looks forward to these massive restoration jobs. >> this is work we love to do and when somebody needs help we're happy to help. i don't come down here to chase money. we come down because we feel we have an obligation to our profession and nobody else can do it. >> reporter: bge couldn't say how many customers will be restored. guest welcome to summer in maryland. >> it's hot for us. we're used to it. we workout doors every day 365 days a year. i'll take the heat o
in 1952 in the beacon hill neighborhood of seattle, washington. his parents immigrated to the u.s. from china and the 1930's. his father fought in world war ii and worked as a cook. he passed away when the mayor was 15. his mother was a seamstress and a waitress. mayor lee has five siblings, he graduated from college in maine, he also went to uc- berkeley law school and finished in 1978. he and his wife have two daughters. i also want to mention, prior to becoming mayor, one of the key points in his contributions to the community is after he completed law school, he worked as a managing attorney for the san francisco asian law caucus, where he was an advocate for affordable housing and the rights of immigrants and renters. mayor lee -- [applause] >> thank you. welcome to city hall. the people's city hall, san francisco. i want you all to note that that was such a wonderful rendition of our national anthem. please give another applause to the millennium -- melanie and her daughter. i am so excited about all of you and seen so many of you from all over our state. come to city hall anin sa
with city car share where we're trying to encourage departments to use city car share. we have a very good vehicle pool where we're reducing vehicles, we have a city hall and vehicle pulled. we're trying to get those in different corridors where we have groupings of offices and working with those departments. we have new technology that is helpful to us in identifying where we should put up vehicle pulls within the city and virtual pools where there -- you have these different cars in different locations that we could maybe not use that often the work with different departments where they can share those vehicles. we're working with departments through the city fleet manager and through jackie fong to work with those departments in coming up with solutions to reduce the department's fleet where they can keep their business operations moving. >> thank you. i appreciate the work. i also notice that you have one new position dedicated for purchasing for hsa. a pretty high volume of purchase requests. i was wondering if this is new demand or something existing. what is generating this volume o
% of the total u.s. international traffic. so i -- for that as a predicate, i'd ask you based upon that dependence we have i guess is the best word, what can you tell us about the importance of this -- of this treaty as -- just as it relates to that 95% dependency that we have on that transmission? >> well, we invest a great deal, senator, and making these cables as redundant as we can. we use the term mesh networks and if you think about it as a fence, can you cut certain pieces of it, but there are other pieces of the network that are redundant and therefore so are in some ways the government, i guess. to make sure that our customers can rely on that service. that helps us when we have things like storms or earthquakes that sever the cable, but if the country takes some sort of a unilateral action such as we have seen and doesn't frankly support some of the repair operations that we had in vietnam, and i refer to that in my testimony where it took many months to get those cables repaired, that really can impact global commerce, and so the framework that we will have in place with
piece of information into a google search system to tell us what we need to know, whether it is a car, a person, a description like that. we can find it out like that. you would think we would have been able to do this already, but that has not been the case. we just got e-mail department-wide last year. so we have moved tremendously just in the last 13 months, and we have left the note post-it days, and we are now into a google searchable web base data warehouse and now have a partnership with sf-stit, h.p., arch-touch and a mayor pushing the whole thing forward with his full sort. and these officers behind me will never know a desk top computer. they will only know mobile technology, and that includes the three classes a year for the next six year and two classes a year after that. so eventually we will be the most tech no logical progressive police department to make this -- not only san francisco, but the entire bay area as safe a community as there is in the country. so i think you, and again i want to recognize mike's mom, irene homer, sue homer, and sue's gorgeous daughter.

to us to build a basketball team which you will be proud of, and i'm talking about us internally. it is up to them to complete this project, and i know they will. the onus is not on us as owners. the onus is on us as players and coaches and executives to build a team that is worthy of a building like this. to me, nothing less than championship caliber team is what i have always strove for in my life. i heard one great quotation in my life that i would remind you of, and i have it on my back for counter for a 30-some years. nothing happens unless first a dream. you have to be a dreamer, and we had two owners here who are dreamers. if you do not have a vision where you want to go, these gentlemen know where they want to go, and they are putting their money behind their mouth, and to come to live in you like this -- my god. if i were a player, this would be my resting place if i were a free agent. david, we cannot talk about free agents, but, if i were a player coming to a building like this, i know i would have great interest in playing in one of the great cities of america, and us
lawyers and a legal assistant to help us with that work. we also requested an attorney and a legal assistant to assist us with a dedicated consumer protection unit that we happen to believe will be cost effective and will pay for itself over the course of the entirety of this two-year budget cycle. as most of you are aware, we had a long history of doing affirmative litigation in the city attorney's office that has always been supported by the mayor's office and board of supervisors throughout the course of my tenure. it resulted from an effort started by my predecessor where we used affirmative litigation to receive tobacco money, to which extend we still get $50 million a year. i have continued that tradition and you have continue to support that, i'll be -- albeit subject to reductions over the past several years. last year, i back filled through some settlements i had to make sure there was money stay in constant but less reliance on the general fund. it has been something that has paid dividends for the general fund of the city and county of san francisco. for example, last ye
